What the heck did you expect? Are they the same profile tires?

Yes...what are the tires?

I have 22's, and the ride is virtually the same (with a 285 tire)

No matter what anyone tells you and all else being equal, bigger rim+ less sidewall always rides harsher.

Look at the bright side though...you're able to now take corners at 0.85g vs 0.84g, and I'll bet they look good.

BC.

Goosey Loosey is on the cards with his comments - can you confirm what tyre pressures your running on your 22" Hankook ST's ?

The HSE versus S/C model may have a different level of ride and handling performance due to the dynamic ride control system !

Re: Just put 22 stormer on, and ride quality dramatically decrea

To be honest, I don't know what tire pressure I am running.. Tire shop did it for me so :shhh:

I run 22X10, 50 offset

285/35/22

and It is Ventus ST

will see how I feel to day, and what's even worse is that my vibration thing is worse with 22 than 20...

I hope dealer can fix the vibration next week but they doesn't seem like very helpful at all

You can bet they won't be helpful if you show up with your 22s... Make sure you put the stockers back on and never mention your experience with the 22" wheels to the dealer. :wink:

I think it's likely that a 285 series tire will provide a better ride on a 9.5" rim than a 10" rim. Sidewall angle likely provides some cushion, rather than a straight vertical sidewall...

Re: Just put 22 stormer on, and ride quality dramatically decrea

I see, but it's already on and too bad I couldn't find it out before.

I should have done more research, but I wanted to get it before my wife gets in Town :mrgreen:

she doesn't like me to spend any money on car anymore :naughty:

Re: Just put 22 stormer on, and ride quality dramatically decrea

Well... Long story short.

I traded in my CLK55 to RRS.. because she wanted bigger car for me... so I don't drive her GLK..

anyway, I traded in while she was gone, and I was gonna tell her dealer gave me two sets of wheels :shhh:

Re: Just put 22 stormer on, and ride quality dramatically decrea

little off topic but UK I love those wheels in your sig!

back on topic...So is your only issue with road noise or are you getting that annoying vibration between 50-70mph?

Re: Just put 22 stormer on, and ride quality dramatically decrea

I can deal with Road Noise, but

22 amplifies the vibration situation..
and I am pretty certain dealer is gonna blame on 22

And they are probably correct to do so!

There's no reason a true, round 22" wheel properly balanced would provide any more vibration than 20's. It is a convenient excuse for the dealer, but not an accurate one.

Unfortunately, that's what most LR dealers do..

I really hope they can truly wake up and do the work :doh:
